I’d forgotten about Hamilton’s race around the bay a 30 kilometre marathon that has attracted runners annually since 1894 – the oldest marathon in North America – three years older than the Boston marathon. Phew, wow….
So when I left early to draw two Sundays ago (March 25) I wasn’t prepared for the closure to the downtown and horrendous back up of traffic that kept me driving a good 50 minutes around in circles, wrong way down one way streets, cursing vehemently and causing me to be a good 15 minutes late for my life session. Then to give new meaning to the cliché ‘adding insult to injury’ I learned that our model would not appear because her booking had not been confirmed! Really!
These drawings are from this past Sunday, April 3 - hardly any traffic, the town seemed quite deserted.
